Anxiety disorders affect approximately 7 to 15 percent of the population. Fortunately, these illnesses generally respond well to treatment and the majority of patients experience significant relief from their symptoms.

AMI-Quebec has a support group for both people who suffer from an anxiety disorder and their families and friends. For more information go HERE. For other organizations that can help you understand and cope with anxiety disorders, please see below.
